    The volume control is a little on / off.Il increases rapidly early in the race, which is a bit annoying when you want to change it for a song, or when you find the right setting in rehearsal, we cup to drink all his beer and we took over the rehearsal. was struggling to regain his niveau.Donc it is thoroughly and after I set my volume pedal or amp, even if the BXR 300 is so powerful that I rarely exceeds 2 and the fine adjustment of volume is also a must!

    UTILIZATION

    Channel pleasant, with a good grip in a wide main.Plus Ibanez but helps keep your whole hand, rock'n'roll atmosphere, feeling rather good instrument vibrer.Vernis agréable.Préférant the top of the handle and big bass notes well access to acute I do not have much of a problem ... If the sound is very round and if we go there.
    Average weight, after 4 hours of rehearsal you can feel the weight of the beast, but not excessive.
    The tuners hold tuning well, even in soft case.
    It is solid and reliable.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is pretty good, not too typical, which can be an advantage or a inconvénient.tout depend on his amp, pedals used, or a preamp, which allows you to play all styles and adjust itself his or her own.
    It sounds rather low and it takes a lot of mid and treble to get out of the mix.
    With a set of nine chord and the right amp setting you get something very decent for this price range.
    I play on BXR 300 and I added a Boss GEB-7 and it sounds pretty good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Using it for a few months I am very happy.
    This is my first 5 string and this low IF I scrambled pieces on very heavy or reggae for example.
    I think in the medium term to change the pickups for a little boost and to sing a little more.
    Quality / price ratio excellent, I would do it without hesitation.
    From a Squier and a Jackson (very, even too typical rock 80) I rediscovered the pleasure of playing all styles of music.

    Bought from Academy of Sound in Glasgow, Scotland for GBP349. I tried quite a few basses and was generally impressed with the Yamaha's. Five string was a bit of a whim!

    I am just a beginner, but the BB605 is easy to play. The set up wasn't great from new, but my teacher soon had it sorted and now its great to play. The finish is wonderfull, mine is the wine-red. I wasn't too happy about the gold hardware but it has grown on me and does suit the deep red colour. The active electronics give plenty of scope for adjustment.

    Not much. BUT.... be carefull, some advertisements imply that the BB605 has the NE1 Parametric EQ electronics - IT DOES NOT! Only the VERY expensive Nathan East model......

    Not much. BUT.... be carefull, some advertisements imply that the BB605 has the NE1 Parametric EQ electronics - IT DOES NOT! Only the VERY expensive Nathan East model (BB-EAST) has this facility. The BB605 (and BB604) are much simpler, with only a switchable (on/off) mid boost/cut control. There isn't anything wrong with what's provided for the money but it ain't parametric!!! The B string is a bit tricky to get the action and intonation right - mine is still a bit buzzy.

    Simply excellent. The bass is very nice indeed with great attention to detail. I am very pleased with it.

    A very nice instrument - recommended.

    <ul> alder body: wood medium, medium weight
    24 Frets, Saddle handle, key rosewood
    2 x Single Coil Pickups
    Eq 1 bass, 1 treble, 1 to balance the pickups and 1 volume
    + 1 EQ button-setting controls with an on / off switch: it is very practical to change his / intensity rapidly eg tapping, harmonic
    No more red wine

    So 8 / 10 for micro and parametric EQ coming rcuprer setting
    </ul>

    UTILIZATION

    The disparities between the strings is similar to that of a 4, making the handle off.
    Access in acute is average.
    We get it only sound good with the eq paramtrique activate and the intensity at or near max. The trs output is strong.
    The neck and fingerboard are old. The handle......

    SOUNDS

    I do not play jazz so I am looking for assets and a perfect prsence and DEFINITIONS.
    I play on a Behringer and now an Eden WT-400.
    Well as in acute and severe. Especially serious.

    OVERALL OPINION

    <ul> Since 5 years I know the limits.

    6 / 10 not to repeat the purchase and move to a CATEGORY suprieur if you intend to use as the first instrument: versatile low average

    Body: Alder
    Neck: Bolt-on Saddle
    Fingerboard: Rosewood, 600mm radius
    Frets: 24
    Scale: 864mm
    Pickups: 2 Single coils
    CONTRL: Volume, pickup balance, bass, treble, cut the mdiums with switch on / off
    Bridge: Chrome 5 individual bridges

    For the price it is a good set!

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is a bit much (but I think it's because of the 5th string) is dstabilisant to beginners but I'm accustomed to. It slides easily.
    CHAC is keen to rev right up to the 21me box but is not really the same for gn dernires Access in 3 boxes.
    A suitable weight is all (about 7kg, I find not so heavy a)

    SOUNDS

    I play mtal mlodique and progressive, she agrees with D'Addario strings and my amp Hartke A100 I get get the sound I want, but its main strength is a versatility: it really fits a large variety of styles (rock, mtal, blues, jazz ...), it on with all the buttons rglages! It is even sometimes difficult to get the sound research, but in the end you'll find it (it's on with a good graphic on qualiseur amp help).
    I manage to get a large variety of sound with more bass SETTING THE qualiseur the graphic Hartke.

    8 / 10 because it's hard sometimes to find the right sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it now for 1 year and 4 months and I apprcit more.
    In the beginners I say that bad but my choice silent APRS operating a little low I started really loving it.
    This bass is not to be too versatile, the A100 qualiseur graphic Hatke helps me a lot in getting the sound.
    For 550 euros, and still less is a good choice to start low. Satisfied.

    Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, 24 box
    micro single coil
    active eq: bass, treble, cut the mids.
    Note: the original strings are rotten.

    UTILIZATION

    Handle large enough (this is my first 5c) but in the end very comfortable, no particular concern.
    For access to acute, there are better but nothing insurmountable.
    It is not particularly heavy, the overall comfort suits me perfectly.

    It yardstick versatility but it is true that it is difficult to find on the "good sound". 7 because of the time going to adjust the sound.

    SOUNDS

    Days I mostly rock, metal. It should because it has a neutral sound that fits any style. If we add more of the eq settings, microphones and the knob used to designate the cutoff frequency of mediums you can actually touch any style ... provided they spend a little time.
    Neutral sound with eq is very hot, he looks a bit like that of jazz, less typical.
    But the sound is clear we feel that we are a force.
    With the switch can be switched mid move to a perfect sound for slap or nu metal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had five months, the highlight is the opportunity to shape the sound very effectively, because I like the change.
    As one can blame him against a lack of personality.

    I tried to rob a Cort Elrick, an Ibanez Ergodyne, ROCKBASS a corvette and a Traben.
    This is the one that pleased me most in versatility and playability

    The price / quality ratio is excellent, less than 500 €, it's worth, the construction is impeccable.

    My next bass will surely have a big personality is one of its lesser range, my tastes refined.
